Following is a list of newspapers in Pakistan.

Most news sources are owned by a few media conglomerates with Jang Group, Nawai Waqt Group, and Dawn Group delivering the majority of the dispatches. All of these groups existed before the Pakistani independence and created a niche in both print and broadcast media. Other smaller, but significant, media agencies include Khabrain Group, Express News Group, Business Recorder Group and Media Times Ltd (owner of Daily Times and Aaj Kal newspapers). Jehan Pakistan is another emerging group. It publishes Daily Jehan Pakistan from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad simultaneously. It is an executive newspaper with a colorful new lay-out. Mr Rasheed Channa, a senior journalist, is the editor of Daily Jehan Pakistan, Karachi edition which widely covers Sindh and Balochistan. It is owned by Awais Raoof.
